Whew! Sorry this post is up a bit late today. I was too busy yesterday (shopping, ordering Christmas cards which required an insane amount of time looking through photos to find decent ones, etc) to write today's post. My intent was to create some printables with story starters to use for daily creative writing. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I decided to share some wonderful links to others who have already created story starter printables.
Creative Writing Jar - instructions for putting together creative writing jar. It includes 22 pages of story starters to cut into strips and add to the jar!!!
EsacpadeDirect - print off each story starter sheet to keep in a binder or file. One starter per page with lines provided for writing.
Teaching Ideas - I was very impressed with this site! Not only does it have story planning sheets, but also contains story setting cards, character cards, object cards, and story idea sheets. Have a child choose a setting card, a couple of character and object cards and sue them in their story.
Scholastic - has some reproducibles to promote independent writing.
Grab a binder or decorate a composition book and get started writing!

For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
